Why Are There So Many Species of Herbivorous Insects in Tropical Rainforests?
Despite recent progress in understanding mechanisms of tree species coexistence in tropical forests, a simple explanation for the even more extensive diversity of insects feeding on these plants hasExpand

The global distribution of diet breadth in insect herbivores
Significance Dietary specialization determines an organism’s resource base as well as impacts on host or prey species. There are important basic and applied reasons to ask why some animals haveExpand

Host specialization of leaf-chewing insects in a New Guinea rainforest
Summary 1 Data on host use by herbivorous insects in the tropics cannot be cross-referenced between the studies as only a fraction of the species can be formally identified. It is thus imperativeExpand

Predictably simple: assemblages of caterpillars (Lepidoptera) feeding on rainforest trees in Papua New Guinea
Predictability in the composition of tropical assemblages of insect herbivores was studied using a sample of 35 952 caterpillars (Lepidoptera) from 534 species, feeding on 69 woody species from 45Expand

Dynamic Formation of Asexual Diploid and Polyploid Lineages: Multilocus Analysis of Cobitis Reveals the Mechanisms Maintaining the Diversity of Clones
Given the hybrid genomic constitutions and increased ploidy of many asexual animals, the identification of processes governing the origin and maintenance of clonal diversity provides usefulExpand

Aquatic insects indicate terrestrial habitat degradation: changes in taxonomical structure and functional diversity of dragonflies in tropical rainforest of East Kalimantan
As a group of freshwater invertebrates, dragonflies (Odonata) are commonly used as ecological indicators of freshwater ecosystems. Despite earlier studies suggesting that adult odonates may be goodExpand

Timing of breeding, habitat preference and reproductive success of marsh harriers (Circus aeruginosus)
During 2002–2005 we analyzed Lack’s Hypothesis about the timing of the breeding of marsh harriers (Circus aeruginosus) in the Poodří to the breeding period and preference of heterogeneous habitat. AnExpand

Clonal Turnover Versus Clonal Decay: A Null Model for ObserveD Patterns of Asexual Longevity, Diversity and Distribution
Abstract Phylogenetic and phylogeographic studies suggest that a majority of asexual organisms are evolutionarily recent offshoots of extant sexual taxa and that old clonal lineages tend to beExpand

Dragonflies (Odonata) in the Bornean rain forest as indicators of changes in biodiversity resulting from forest modification and destruction
Dragonfly assemblages represent sensitive indicators of environmental conditions including the water environment and forest structure. However, an understanding the ecology of tropical forestExpand
